Three FrogTape® Products Earn the Good Housekeeping Seal
AVON, OHIO (October 2014) – Since 1909, consumers have looked to the Good Housekeeping Seal to provide valuable information about the best products on the market. From appliances and cosmetics, to cleaning, kitchen and household necessities, shoppers can rest-assured that the products have been rigorously evaluated when they spot that recognizable emblem. FrogTape® brand painter’s tape is proud to announce that three of its tapes have received this accolade: For the fourth consecutive year, FrogTape® Multi-Surface has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal, while this marks the second year in a row for FrogTape® Delicate Surface, and the first, for the brand’s newest innovation, FrogTape® Shape Tape™. Each were reviewed by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute for its product, packaging and marketing claims, and selected as items that perform as intended, earning the products the Good Housekeeping Seal.
“Our research team works tirelessly to create innovative painter’s tapes that provide professional results, as well as hassle-free usage for consumers,” said Kacie Baon, category manager, ShurTech Brands, LLC. “We’re elated that the quality of our FrogTape products has been recognized by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. As a trusted brand, we’ll continue to provide high-quality painting tape products to meet the needs of homeowners as they embark on their latest DIY project.”
For more than 100 years, the Good Housekeeping Seal has helped to reassure – and protect – consumers during the product purchasing process. The Seal is a symbol of the magazine's Consumer Policy, which means that if a product bearing the Seal is defective within the first two years of purchase, Good Housekeeping will replace the product or refund the purchase price. To earn the Seal, products must undergo an evaluation process performed by a group of scientists and engineers at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. After comprehensive evaluation, the Institute determines if the product performs as intended, and if so, the product undergoes additional review. When products such as FrogTape are backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal, consumers can feel comfortable that they’re purchasing a reliable item.
The three FrogTape painter’s tapes that earned the Good Housekeeping Seal were all designed for hassle-free decorative painting and easy usability. FrogTape Multi-Surface is a medium-adhesion painter’s tape for use on an array of surfaces including cured painted walls, wood, metal and glass. The tape is available in a variety of widths for endless painting possibilities. FrogTape Delicate Surface is a low-adhesion painter’s tape that can be applied to fresh paint (at least 24-hours old), wallpaper and faux finishes. The tape’s lower level of adhesion helps to prevent surface damage. FrogTape Shape Tape is a pre-cut painter’s tape with repetitive designs in Chevron, Wave and Scallop patterns. And, on-trend designs created utilizing Shape Tape can be used to personalize the entire home.
FrogTape brand painter’s tapes are the only products on the market treated with patented PaintBlock® Technology, a super-absorbent polymer that reacts with the water in latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, helping to prevent paint bleed and create sharp paint lines. With FrogTape, consumers can trust that their paint projects will have high-quality results.
